About this episode 

I recently had the incredible opportunity to chat with the brilliant Brian Saber on #TheIntentionalFundraiser #podcast.

We covered topics ranging from the power of listening in fundraising to the art of building lasting relationships and even delved into the unique strengths of introverted fundraisers.

The episode is packed with valuable insights, personal anecdotes, and a few surprises. Whether you're a seasoned fundraising pro or just starting on your fundraising journey, I promise there's something here for you.

So grab your headphones, your notepad, and prepare to be inspired by Brian's wisdom. Remember, we're all on this fundraising journey together, and every bit of knowledge can help us make a more significant impact on the world.

With gratitude,
Tammy Zonker
